    Great to know! This one was in great shape. I bought new shocks for it on Amazon ($35) and replaced the LED batteries only because I wanted it like new. Loving it so far.

    I haven’t heard that? This one fits perfectly. Covers the tailgate so it can’t be opened. My dad has a ARE, really nice painted bed cover. This one is about $900 new and I got it for $200. Maybe some models sit weird on the tailgate but this one seems pretty normal.

    I used to drive a 1981 Honda Accord in my poor college student days. The drivers front caliper starting sticking at various times and would force me to have to pull over. I would have to jack the car up, remove the wheel, remove the caliper, remove the brake pads, use a "C" clamp to push the piston back in, then reinstall everything before I could head on down the road, all the while the caliper and wheel were too hot to really touch. It was a month or so of this before I could afford a new caliper but in that month or so I was able to pull over after traveling at speed, make the necessary repairs, stow all the tools and be back on the road in less than 10 minutes.

    I also used to work at a Toyota/Nissan/Honda dealership as a service advisor. 30K, etc., services were considered cake jobs as they typically paid 6-8 hours but a competent mechanic could finish in about 2 hours. Want to make a tech happy? Give him two 30K services in one day!

    Went to the stealership today to pickup some more oil filters. and asked the parts guy for a price on my fan belt. He said $72.09. I showed him the same OEM belt on Amazon for $35.95. He said "well shit I guess your not getting the belt then"

    /\ Went to my stealership to buy 4 lug nuts for 3rd gen OR wheels (not going to use the OEM locks). Parts guy comes back with the 4 lugs and said they are $15.99 each! Much to my surprise he smiled and said "just kidding you can have them!" Offered to buy him lunch and turned the offer down. Very impressed.

    When I bought my truck I made them throw in the locking lugs. and they wanted to keep the ones they removed. I put them in my pocket and later put them under the backseat for spares.

    Yeah, it came down pretty quick.

    I drove through a 4 car accident and my exit to work was blocked off by another accident and police. Heard about a tanker or ambulance overturned on other side of town.

    Was a awful morning for commuters.

    Finally replaced the suspension on my 07 TRD AC, 5100's all around, set to 1.75 in the front on stock coils, TSB. My front struts were so shot that I got over 2" of lift lol. Good for another 150k? We'll see!

    Measurements from center to fender:

    Ride Height____Before____After
    Front Driver:____20 1/8____22 1/4 (+2 1/8)
    Front Pass:____20 3/8____22 1/2 (+2 1/8)
    Rear Driver:____21 3/4____21 3/4 (+0)
    Rear Pass:____22 1/4____22 1/4 (+0)

    So the front sits 0.5" higher drivers side, and 0.25" passenger side. Minor bro lean, may do AAL next if it doesn't settle.

    My OEM's look different. Does each side have 6 bolts?
